In a recent tweet, Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister, Omar Abdullah took a dig at Vivek Oberoi who is all set to play the role of Mr Nearendra Modi in the upcoming PM biopic.
The Chief Minister believes Prime Minister Narendra Modi has been outdone by his predecessor Manmohan Singh atleast in the department of casting.
The former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister on twitter compared “PM Narendra Modi” and “The Accidental Prime Minister” and remarked that “life is unfair” for “poor Modi-ji”.
A tongue in cheek remark, Mr Abdullah tweeted saying, “Life is unfair Dr Manmohan Singh got someone of the calibre of Anupam Kher. Poor Modi ji has to settle for Vivek Oberoi. Salman Khan hota toh kya maza aata.”
The first look poster from the film was unveiled recently where, Vivek Oberoi can be seen in prosthetics and make-up dressed up as Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
The poster was unveiled by Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis.
The film is being directed by Omung Kumar who has earlier directed Mary Kom and Sarbjit.
Anupam Kher-starrer “The Accidental Prime Minister”, based on an account by Manmohan Singh’s former advisor Sanjaya Baru, will release this Friday.
Many in the Congress believe the film highlighting Manmohan Singh’s tenure as prime minister of the Congress-led UPA government depicts the Gandhis – party president Rahul Gandhi and his mother Sonia Gandhi – in a negative way.
We may also remind that Omar Abdullah’s dig at Vivek Oberoi could be intentional as it includes Salman Khan.
A flashback to the time when Salman Khan and Vivek Oberoi got into a bitter feud over their then girlfriend Aishwarya Rai.
Aishwarya moved on but the soured relationship between Salman and Vivek never saw the light of the day.
